Pastors Use Children's Bibles as Bible Demand Exceeds Supply

[177] prayers in [14] nations have been posted for Jacques Coutou.

Jacques Coutou is a former pastor who now equips other pastors with God’s Word. Jacques converted a room in his home into a warehouse where he stores the Bibles he helps distribute to pastors throughout Mali. During 2021, Jacques singlehandedly distributed around 5,000 Bibles, and he shared with front-line workers that the demand is so great that some pastors must rely on children’s Bibles as their only text for teaching. Praise God for Jacques’ ministry to pastors throughout Mali, and pray that even more Bibles will reach Christians in Mali who are hungering for God’s Word.

  • Dear Lord, I thank you and praise you for Jacques' faithfulness to "get the word out" in Mali. I became a Sunday school teacher 30 years ago. I learned things I didn't know while teaching the children. The Holy Spirit is the true teacher if we'll just read His word. There is nothing greater than the word of God and sending it OUT all over the world.
